The Cantiague Park Senior Men’s Golf League had its 10th tournament on July 6. The group had 41 golfers on a beautiful but hot summer day. There were 28 pars but no birdies and seven golfers who scored 39 or better. Bruce Danen won the low actual score with a very fine 36. A very overachieving Don Sterling, with a 44, won low overall net, which hopefully he can continue to build on after some rough outings recently. Match play has begun with some very close matches in the first round.
Going to round two (and matched with the following golfer) in match play in Flight A are: Guerra (10), Parker (11), Danen (with a bye for low overall score), Fitzpatrick (12), Pietsch (11), Skaee (nine), O’Brien (11), Hatalsky (14) and Evans (10).
For the first time in Island Trees history, the boys’ track team became the county finalists at a recent county championship meet in Westbury. They came in a close second to the county champion Valley Stream North team. Individually, Lucas Pugliese became the county champion in the 400-meter race with a time of 51.0 seconds. Pugliese has now been All County for two years.
All County status was also gained by the second place finishes of Stephen Schmidt in the discus, Andrew Zabala in the triple jump, and by Tyler Blauvelt in both the long jump and the 200-meter sprint.
For some, riding a bicycle is a simple hobby. For Mike Cohen, a 27-year-old native of Levittown who now resides in San Diego, biking is a personal statement of triumph and a call to action to other young cancer survivors.
Cohen recently completed a 3,132-mile cross-country bike ride from San Diego to Long Island, finishing his journey—and celebrating eight cancer-free years—at North Shore-LIJ’s Monter Cancer Center, where he thanked the oncologist who helped save his life, Steven Allen, MD.
